STATEWIDE — Good news at the gas pumps. 

GasBuddy analyst Patrick DeHaan believes prices in Indiana shouldn’t rise above $3 per gallon any time soon, if at all the rest of this spring, or even this summer. 

Most of the country has hit their peak, according to DeHaan. But the Great Lakes region, and Indiana in particular, is a little different. 

“One caveat is BP’s massive refinery in Whiting, Indiana, is still undergoing maintenance,” DeHaan says. “So there could be a little bump in the road here and there, but for now, things look okay.”

The maintenance is what causes those small spikes every week-and-a-half. 

“Those will continue,” DeHaan says. “But I think prices, for the time being, may stay very close to where they are, in terms of the peak.”

Last week, most of the state saw prices rise to $2.99 per gallon. Since then, they’ve dropped to a statewide average of $2.87. Indianapolis is just below that at $2.86.

If you need to fill up today, or the next few days, DeHaan says you’ll be good. We shouldn’t see prices rise again until early next week.
